Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic The Tattooed Book Geek. The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.
This week’s theme is a cover featuring food: “The world was my oyster but I used the wrong fork.”
I’ve gone for one of my favourite foods for this theme – chocolate. More precisely, Joanne Harris’ Chocolat.
And the winner is… A DRAW!
Covers A and F are my winners this week! I liked their simplicity. There is colour in the background, though somewhat subtle, and although there are things going on around the covers, the focus in both is that nest with the trio of shiny gold-wrapped chocolate eggs.
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!
Next week I will be looking for a cover featuring an insect: “If I be waspish, best beware my sting.”
